12 Days of Christmas


I am participating in the 12 Days of Christmas with Cait at The Blessed Life.  

Day 1 - What Does Christmas Mean To You?

Christmas to me is LOVE.  God loved me so much that He sent His only son, Jesus, to earth to be born so that I might live eternally and forever with Him.  It's hard for me to comprehend such love.  I am so grateful that He came.
Christmas is about loving others.  Every year for the last several years our church has put on a Community Christmas dinner for those in our community who are homeless or who cannot otherwise afford a Christmas dinner.  We fill their stomachs by serving them a hot meal, and get the privilege of filling their spirits by sharing the free gift of Jesus.  We also bless the children and adults with gifts. It does my heart good to be a part of such an amazing outpouring of love to others.
Christmas is also about spending time with my family.  We enjoy getting up early on Christmas morning, reading the story of Jesus' birth, praying together, opening gifts, making a huge breakfast and then enjoying the day with extended family.
It's easy to get distracted during this busy seasons. I strive to keep JOY in my heart as I reflect on the goodness of God and all that I have been given through Jesus, God's free gift of love to me.
